Creating a beautiful and functional nursery is one of the most exciting aspects of preparing for a new baby. As you start to plan, you may be wondering how to choose the right bedding for your little one's crib. One option that has become increasingly popular in recent years is neutral nursery bedding.
One of the biggest benefits of neutral nursery bedding is that it can be used for both boys and girls. Rather than being limited to traditional pink or blue, neutral bedding allows you to choose from a wide range of colors, including whites, black, grays, and creams. Neutral colors give you the flexibility to easily update the room as your child grows, without having to completely overhaul the space. Plus, neutral bedding can be a great gender-neutral option for parents who prefer not to disclose the gender of their baby or who are expecting a surprise. Let's further explore the versatility of neutral bedding and how it can help you create a beautiful and cohesive nursery.
One of the essential elements of any nursery is the crib sheet. Neutral crib sheets come in a variety of colors and patterns that can work for any style or theme. For a clean and classic look, consider a simple white or cream-colored sheet. If you want to add a pop of color, you can opt for a pastel shade like light blue or pale pink. If you prefer something more gender-neutral, go for a soft gray, beige, or even black and white.
Neutral crib sheets are also versatile because they can easily be mixed and matched with other bedding and décor items. This means you can change up the look of your nursery without having to replace all of your bedding.

Another important element of a nursery is a cozy baby blanket. Neutral blankets are a great choice because they can be used for both boys and girls (gender-neutral) and can coordinate with any bedding set. Plus, neutral blankets tend to have a timeless look that will never go out of style.
When choosing a baby blanket, consider the material. Olli+Lime baby blankets are made from 100% premium cotton with a soft, minky backing that will keep your little one cozy and offer several neutral designs. Baby blankets are included in all Olli+Lime bedding sets and lovey security blankets are also available in the same designs, so you can mix and match depending on your preferences.

Other Elements That Bring a Nursery Together
While neutral bedding is a great starting point, there are other elements that can help bring your nursery together. Wall décor is an easy and affordable way to add a personal touch to your baby's room. Consider hanging framed photos or artwork, wall decals, or create a custom gallery wall.
Olli+Lime has a variety of wall art and wall decal options in black and white to add fun and sweet elements to your nursery while staying with a neutral theme.
Rugs are another element that can add warmth and texture to a nursery. Look for a neutral-colored rug in a soft material like wool or cotton to create a cozy space for your little one to play.
Finally, don't forget about storage. A nursery can quickly become cluttered with all of the necessary baby gear. Invest in some cute and functional storage baskets to keep everything organized and tidy.
Neutral nursery bedding is a versatile and practical choice that can work for any style or theme. By choosing neutral bedding, you can easily mix and match with other décor elements to create a cohesive and beautiful nursery for your little one.
